Memphis tickets

Inspired by a true story, Memphis follows the journey of a beautiful underground club singer in 1950s Tennessee; and one man’s vision to bring her voice and music into the mainstream and onto the American airwaves. It’s an ambition that will fight cultural divides and spark a music revolution that will shake the world.

In the heart of London’s Theatreland, Memphis the musical takes audiences back to an era when a young American generation were beginning to embrace the incredible sounds of rock ‘n’ roll, blues, and gospel. Starring the Queen of British Soul and multi-award-winning recording artist, Beverley Knight, with original songs by GRAMMY® winner and Bon Jovi co-founder David Bryan; Memphis blends soaring emotion and powerful music to create a thrilling London theatre production that raises the roof.

Winner of four Tony Awards® in 2010, including Best Musical, the show has now found a home at London’s Shaftesbury Theatre. So, book your Memphis theatre tickets to see this energetic show with extraordinary singing talent. Fresh from her turn in The Bodyguard musical, Beverley Knight shines again on the West End stage, in Memphis. Meanwhile, West End favourite (and The Commitments star) Killian Donneely lends his soulful voice to the role of Huey, belting out ballads including Memphis Lives in Me.

Memphis the musical is loosely based on Memphis DJ, Dewey Phillips, one of the first white DJs to play black music in Segregation-era America. The talented cast and Grammy award-winning David Bryan’s songs drive the action forward. This is a West End theatre treat like no other.

Built by talented Victorian architect, Bertie Crewe, the Shaftesbury Theatre is Grade II Listed, and makes an impressive setting for the show. Its famous stage has played host to several big-name theatre productions through the years, including Rock of Ages, Flashdance and the Tony-award-winning musical, Hairspray.

Thanks to its catchy, original songs, touching story, and dynamic performances; Memphis the musical has garnered great reviews from critics including the Telegraph, since it appeared in the West End, in 2014.The show is a hit at the lastminute.com office too. Our copywriter, Mark loved the “sensational songs and choreography”. Grab your cheap Memphis tickets now to experience this dynamic London show.

Multi-platinum selling recording artist and songwriter Matt Cardle, who rose to fame winning the seventh series of ITVs The X Factor will join the cast of MEMPHIS THE MUSICAL in London, it is today announced. Cast and company of the award-winning ‘Best Musical’ at the Shaftesbury Theatre are delighted to welcome Matt who will star as radio DJ ‘Huey Calhoun’ from 6 July, taking over from Killian Donnelly who originated the role in the West End.

Matt will join Queen of British Soul, Beverley Knight who extends her run as club singer ‘Felicia Farrell’ in MEMPHIS THE MUSICAL through October 2015

Matt Cardle says: “I’m thrilled to be making my acting and West End debut in Memphis. From the first time I saw the show I felt I had a real connection with the character of Huey. It’s no secret that I worked for many years before my breakthrough as a musician. I started my first band when I was 12 years old and spent at least 15 years recording albums and sending demos to record companies before finally having my voice heard. It was the united love from family and friends, similar to that at the heart of the Memphis story, that saw me through. I am truly honoured to be sharing the stage with the incredible Beverley Knight, I’ve admired her work for such a long time and can’t wait to get started in the show”.
